– Noah Gragson will make his first start at Mid-Ohio and his second on a road course in the NXS this weekend.

– The Las Vegas native earned a ninth-place finish in his road racing series debut last weekend in Watkins Glen.

– In two previous starts on road courses in the Truck Series, Gragson has earned one top five and two top 10s.

– Gragson has also made a combined 10 starts on road courses in the NASCAR K&N Pro Series East and West, scoring four wins, five top fives and seven top 10s. Gragson most recently visited Victory Lane in the K&N Pro Series West earlier this summer at Sonoma after starting second and leading 24 laps en route to the win.


“We’re definitely looking to keep this momentum going we’ve had all summer this weekend in Mid-Ohio. I really feel like this time of year is where we can really make a move because of how comfortable I feel on road courses. We were able to come away with a good run despite some adversity last week in Watkins Glen and I am really confident that we can have an even better run in Mid-Ohio, despite having never been there before. It’ll be an interesting weekend for sure and I am ready to get it going.”
